For Clarity, Speed, and Direction On How To move Forward with a ASD Diagnosis

You or a loved one might be experiencing symptoms of Autism which has started to negatively impact their life and the people around them. Or you could already be on a waiting list for a diagnosis through the NHS.

We find many people come to us for a private assessment because they want to find out what they are really dealing with. This then allows them to start receiving the right therapy and support that will allow them to effectively manage their symptoms, understand their condition, and live a happy and fulfilling life again.

We also find for children, this allows the parents to start learning how to work with their child effectively if they are diagnosed with ASD or PDA. Schools benefit from knowing how to offer the right support as well. (needs rewording)

It’s also incredibly beneficial for their experiences in education too. With schools now recognising and providing extra support for children with a autism diagnosis. Upon obtaining one will this will allow your child’s school to start offering the needed support and structure required to ensure their experience is enriching and support. Our team are also able to provide guidance on this too.
